    PS: there is a rumour that the Saskatchewan motorcycling season will be cancelled this year due to the forecast that the current snowpack & below 0C temperatures will last until September.:eek1:eek1[/QUOTE]

    I know.... stupid snow,.....:baldy thanks for the link.


    Edit: seems like most of the work is already done!:huh

    Dunno if I would be in for a ride though, my ol xt probably wouldnt keep up!

    From Borden (north of the bridge), we have to be 10 to 20 Km from each other. What year is your XT? Hey, you can always upgrade. I have a friend from Saskatoon who's thinking of upgrading from a KLR650 to a Tiger 800xc.

    My application for the Saskatchewan dual sport forum/group is pending. Should be able to meet more advrider inmates, great...:D

    Pretty cool running into someone so close! I have a friend that hunts quite abit out in your area. Do you farm out there or...?

    My xt is a 1985, with an engine from a 1989 I threw into it. I got the bike cheap to get back into biking, and it works great for bombing around my farm, and to the city and back!

    Yeah if your buddy ever wants to sell his KLR, Im always interested... if its a good deal haha!

    No, I don&#8217;t farm but I own an acreage. I work in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>Saskatoon</st1:place></st1:City>. Still not sure if my buddy is going make the big decision yet. I will PM you when I get my bike on the road.

    Hey BordenBMW, welcome to the SDSC!

    Lots of ideas for SK rides this year. A couple members are scouting out some routes for the TCAT so there's a bunch of places that need exploring.

    .. and you should think about doing the Cypress ride, it was a lot of fun last year.

    Great, I think we should start a Day TrippinÂ’ thread on Advrider for the club.

    They have videos/pics on the website, most are 650's or smaller. There is also a few ktm 950/990.

    That is a really fun road to ride. The blueberries along it in the fall are amazing! Probably going to be pretty wet down there for a long time this spring. The road washed out last year and was closed but you could just barely tightrope a bike past the washed out part. The book' Saskatchewan Scenic Drives' has a great writeup about that road.

    I live by Grandora, straight south of the Borden Bridge, near the Sandyridge Fas-Gas. Great to see others from the area on here.
